They usually don't stand for anything (with a few exceptions), but the letters can give you a sense of the bike's geneology. For example, Suzuki came out with the GS series in the seventies. These were standard bikes - somewhat sporty, but no fairings or similar plastic. Then they introduced the GSX Katana. Then after that, they brought out the GSX-R line of sport bikes that were more extreme than the Katana Some of Honda's bike initials do apparently stand for things - the VT bikes have V-twin engines, VF bikes have V-fours, and the Goldwing series is called the GL CB has something to do with the carburetor design/type. I believe this post is confusing CB with CV. CB purportedly stands for 'City Bike', but I have never seen this documented by Honda. CB is an indicator of Honda's street bike line up (as opposed to RC for instance, which is Honda's moniker for its competition models). CV carbureators are a specific type of carbureator, commonly known as Constant Vacuum or Constant Velocity, in which intake vacuum is used to control the opening/closing of the throttle plates. This is as opposed to a throttle cable directly controlling the throttle plates.
The VIN for all older Honda CB models is on a plate on the neck of the frame right behind the headlight. You read it easiest from the right side of the bike (as seen from sitting on the bike) and it starts off with CB350F then is usually a letter followed by 7 numbers.
